Summary: A dead man on a raft in the South Pacific causes Dr. Jake Cooper and his teenage children to investigate the disappearance of Adam MacKenzie, a missionary to the island of Aquarius. There they find a colony of businessmen, college professors, housewives and the like, under the leadership of Kelno, a man claiming to have founded "a brand-new world, a place free from crime, war, bloodshed, and greed"but who is actually a demented megalomaniac. After many breathless encounters with fire walking, human sacrifices to a giant snake, earthquakes and vicious African tiger flies, the Coopers rescue the missionary.

Review: My dad read this one aloud to my sisters and me when we were younger, but had to stop because it scared my younger sister too much. Upon rereading it, I can kinda understand why. It's VERY dark for a children's book, and has a lot of frightening images. Still, I enjoyed it both then and now - perhaps because of it being slightly more scary than most books I used to read at that age.
